What are Invisalign Aligners?
Invisalign aligners are the invisible new way to straighten teeth without braces. Invisalign aligners are a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth without metal or wires. At Creative Dental Solutions, we are proud to offer this technology.
How do Invisalign Aligners work?
Invisalign aligners move the teeth incrementally and each aligner is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved. The number of aligners created by 3-D computer technology is usually between 15 and 30, although it may be more or less depending on your specific situation. Dr. Sevey will be able to make a better determination during your consultation.
What are the primary benefits of Invisalign Aligners?
- Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible; you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
- Invisalign aligners are removable; you can eat and drink what you want in treatment; you can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
- Invisalign aligners are comfortable. There are no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation.
- Invisalign aligners allow you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start, so you can see how your teeth will look when your treatment is complete. We will then invite you to view your “ClinCheck” movie to see your teeth move from start to finish!
How do I get started?
Call for your free Invisalign consultation to see if you are a candidate for Invisalign treatment! If Dr. Sevey feels that you are a candidate, a series of records including photos, x-rays, and impressions are taken to send to Align Technology to develop a treatment plan for you. There is a $495 charge for this service. Should you decide to go ahead with treatment, this $495 charge will be deducted from your total treatment cost. Once the plan is ready, you will get to see your teeth in motion from start to finish in a computerized movie. At that point, we will have all the information we need to get you started!
Dr. Sevey is an Invisalign Preferred Provider.
